Two part-time positions are available. The RAs will assist with three projects: finalizing research for a book chapter on a technology for reducing carbon dioxide emissions to the environment; conducting research at the intersection of law and science and preparing documents to support the efforts of citizens endeavoring to protect the environment (e.g., manual, model complaint, model FOIA requests); and, helping with research for and preparation of materials for the fall clinic course.

The start and end dates are flexible.  Ideally, at least one RA would begin in May.
